My present invention relates to clothing bags
made of fabric, and particularly to the type which
is at the opening of the box, is provided at one
end with an eyelet or socket 2I, adapted to‘ re
depends from a hook suspended frame.
The principal object of this invention is to
provide a novel and improved clothing bag of the
class mentioned which retains its. full box form
while its closure component is in open position, so
ceive and frictionally engage the hook or prong
22 of an arm 23, pivoted at 24. The ceiling ele
ment I6 of the bag I1 is mounted onto the frame
that the interior of the bag is entirely visible and
freely accessible.
(01. 2064-7)
Another object hereof is to provide a novel and
improved depending clothing bag made of fabric,
which shall have the attributes as are substan
tially afforded by boxes or wardrobes made of
rigid material, that is its interior is wholly and
15 ‘freely accessible when its closure component is
moved to open position, and its shape remains un
A further object of this invention is to provide
a novel depending garment bag or box made of
fabric, of improved construction, having a mem
20 ber which serves as a dust shield when the bag
is closed, and as a hold-down for coat hangers
or other articles when the bag is open.
Another object hereof, is to provide a garment
or box of improved construction which is
cheap to manufacture, which can be compactly
folded when not in use, and which affords the
convenience of a rigid wardrobe.
Other objects will become manifest as this dis
3 O closure proceeds.
In the drawing, forming part of this applica
tion, similar characters of reference indicate cor
and free access to the interior of the box structure

A waved wire element 25, which spans the
adapted to have hung thereon coat hangers carry

25, is rotatably mounted the tubular element 26,
which has no motion longitudinally with respect M O
to the element 25, and there radially extends from
said element 26, a hook 21 which is adapted to
extend upwardly exterior the ceiling of the box
I‘! through an eyelet 28. Such hook serves to
suspend the entire structure, and may be swung
to lie as at 21, when the whole structure is to be
folded compactly.
At the free end of the door I8, is a flap 2!! pro

means for engagement with their counter-parts 30

In the drawing, the numeral I51 designates a
wire frame, the perimeter of which is identical
with the perimeter of the ceiling component I6,
of the fabric bag or box I'I, having a vertical
opening, which box is provided with a door com
ponent I8, swingable along the vertical line I9,
which is the junction of said door component
with the wall 20. The side of the frame I5, which
is hingedly secured a slightly weighted ?ap mem
ber 32 which is adapted to lie over the upper part 03 5
of the door I8 when the box structure I‘! is in
closed condition, to serve as a dust guard, and is
further adapted to be swung over, to lie on top
of the ceiling member I6, when the box structure
is to be opened, in which latter position, member 40
32, may be used to hold down coat hangers or
other articles of which one may want to relieve
himself, while clothes are to be taken or placed
into the box structure I'I. It is evident that the
construction above described is adaptable to as.5
wardrobe structures'having a pair of doors as
illustrated in Fig. 5.
In particular, it is to be noted that the door
components I8, never hang in the user’s way, or
fall draped across the box opening, or is the shape
of the box ever distorted when it is desired to have
access into its interior. The door component I8,
regardless of the position of the arm 23, from
which it depends, always hangs vertically, thus 55
‘effecting a condition only met with in rigid ward
robe constructions.
This invention is capable of numerous forms
and various applications without departing from
the essential features herein disclosed. It is
therefore intended and desired that the speci?c
